First Cut Prototype's automated systems combine many of the benefits of traditional rapid prototyping with CNC machining to speed up the process and lower the cost of getting small quantities (1–10) of machined plastic parts.
Get CNC machined plastic parts in as little as one business day.
First Cut Prototype brings on-line quoting and ordering to the CNC machining world. Upload your 3D CAD model and we'll send you an interactive FirstQuote™ that lets you evaluate the impact of material choice and quantity on price — right on your desktop.
REAL MATERIAL PROPERTIES
Get parts machined from REAL blocks of plastic — not 'plastic like' materials used in SLA, SLS and FDM processes.
IMPROVED SURFACE FINISHES
Avoid the 'stair stepping' inherent in other rapid prototyping processes.
First Cut Prototype is ideal for:
Functional prototyping — test your design before committing to injection molding tooling or high-volume machining.
Custom 'one off' projects — jigs and fixtures where only one or a few parts are required.
Offloading internal machining capabilities — when that BIG project overwhelms your in-house machining capabilities. First Cut Prototype has the capacity to help out.
